+2 on coughing, sneezing without covering mouth.

Also, blowing nose loudly in public (I call it "honking" -- seems like it's just men who are guilty of this). Is that really necessary?? And LOOKING at what comes out; OMG this is so disgusting I can barely stand to think about it.

Yawning loudly. Again, this is almost always men. What IS it with men? It's like everything they do has to be a show with an audience.

CocoaCoily, I'm going to be a crotchety old woman, too. Hell, I think I'm already there.

I have sooo many but lately the thing that's bugging me most is the nose picker. WTH?!?!? Do you really think you are invisible in your car while your finger is so far up your nose your knuckles have disappeared?

Indecisiveness. Like when someone's going for 'Okay, so who wants A and who wants B?' and only two people vote and the rest are like 'it' doesn't matter to me', or 'either or' 'whatever you want to do'.

To me it shows that you don't give a flying f*** for the task at hand, rather than that you want to be agreeable.

It's especially annoying when I take a large group of friends to lunch and ask 'Okay so where do you guys want to go?'
'Whichever,'
'Wherever'
*shrugshrugshrug*

I usually follow that up with 'I guess we'll just go home then' that usually gets them talking!

I just hate passiveness.

Men. Who is surprised that men are just plain gross, raise yer hand? : )

I've been a cranky crotchety cantankerous old lady since I was about 7. And that probably bugs people.

I get SUPER bugged when someone is constantly changing plans. Make a plan and stick to it darn it!!

"Special people" bother me. You know, that one idiot in the long, restless line at the pharmacy/post office/restaurant/library who ALWAYS has a special, exceptional problem that ALWAYS requires a lot of back-and-forth and asking of useless questions.

Don't get me wrong, some people really don't know, or are confused/clueless/whatever.

I'm talking about the ones who are CLEARLY not in that much need of assistance.....they want to hear themselves talk and for everyone else to see how "special" they are

DRIVES. ME. INSANE.

I hate people who cut in line.

Ok, here's a big one. You're in a store. There are 2 registers. Only one is open. Everyone gets in the one line and waits and waits. The line slowly moves along. Some people have been waiting for 15 minutes or more. The other register opens and the people at the END of the line who have only been waiting a minute or 2 rush over to that register. The cashier should ONLY take the next people in the first line who have been waiting the longest. It should be a rule! It should be a law! This makes me want to take a flame thrower to the store.

Also, I hate hate hate it when people use "genius" as an adjective, instead of "ingenious."

Suffix lesson:
-ous = adjective
-us = noun
If you feel sick, you feel nauseated...if you are nauseous, you are making other people sick. Of course I had to go and look it up again just now and some definitions say that "nauseous" can be used when the cause of nausea is unknown, but who the heck knows that? Except for me, now.

I hate "utilize". People say it instead of "use" because it sounds all big n'stuff. "Utilize" means to use something in a way in which it was not intended- if you take a butter knife and utilize it as a screwdriver, for example. MacGyver utilized the heck out of all kinds of stuff. Your average Mr. Bighead Suit does not utilize anything.

OMG and don't get me started on commercials. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

I like this thread.

I hate when people say "anyways" - and I hate it more when they put it in print!

This one is hard for me to describe, but I cant STAND it when someone is speaking and their voice rises (in tone, not volume) a bit at the end of the sentence. It makes everything sound like a question. Same goes for draging out the last word of their sentence. It makes my butt puckerrrrr.

Loud noises have always bothered me - it's the one stimuli that really sends me over the edge. I'm not sure which higher power is responsible for deciding that I would be a good candidate to mother twins. Twins with ADD. Really?

Along with the loud noises are the unecessary noises. Grunters, loud yawners. It's almost like invading my personal space - keep it to yourself! The absolute worst sound is when someone sniffs hard (snorts) and then closes their throat to stop the air. I can almost picture the mucus pooling in their throat. EWWWW!

When people walk around with their bluetooth stuck to their head. What the h#ll? Are you really that important?


Reading through these is cracking me up!

Hee. I use "whom," "drunk" and "swum."

I hate when other drivers speed up to pass me on the road.

I super duper hate when I call someone on the phone and ask is, "Bladda bladda there?" and the person says, "Yes, do you want to speak to him/her?"

No...I was just checking to make sure they were home. Thanks...

Yes, of course I want to speak to the person!

Bad grammar...I find myself always "fixing" people sentences in my head..then I repeat it and get more annoyed...for example,

"they don't got no soap"
I will think "they do not have any soap"
"I just seen her"
I will think "I just saw her"

people who smack their lips while they are eating.

People who constantly have to invalidate other's feelings or beliefs or try to disprove thier point to make themselves feel superior.

People who pick everything apart to try to find some way to disagree with something, ANYTHING that you've said instead of looking at the bigger picture and realizing that responding to the meaning might be more important than disecting everyone's grammar/spelling/choice of words/etc...

OK - so maybe this one isn't really a little insignificant thing, but it still chaps my hide!

Oh no you di'n't!

I double super duper hate it when someone calls and asks "is Bubba there?" because they're supposed to say, "Hello, this is Susie. May I speak to Bubba?" Then I say, "Bubba isn't here right now, may I take a message?"

I have friends who answer their phones in a strange way, IMO. You tell me if this is normal: Ring.. Ring... Ring... "JOHNSONS!" They've taught their children this too so when anyone answers the phone at their house, they just shout out the family name. It's sort of like a business or something. I know some would say "Johnson residence", but it's just the family surname.

Biting into a popsicle is like nails on a chalkboard for me. Even when someone else does it!

My husband thinks I'm insane because I can't stand if he scratches my jeans in the "wrong" direction. I suppose that one needs some elaboration. You know how jeans have a little ribbing type texture that runs on a diagonal? Well he will sometimes absentmindedly lay his hand on my leg and run his fingernails against the grain. (((shiver)))

I know - I'm insane.

I'm like that with ice and my mom and cousins all know it....So they chomp on ice because they know itll drive me insane...I won't even put ice in drinks. If were in a restaurant I have to ask specifically for them to not put ice in my drink.

But I'm a weirdo--Ive never met anybody else with an aversion to ice.

I laugh to myself when people pass me because, 90% of the time, I end up next to them at a stop light or end up ahead of them again.

Ha, me too. My college roommate and I never kept ours on. I have one in my bedroom that's part of a ceiling fan and my husband and I have daily battles on it. Overhead lights are usually so harsh and distant.
